A LORRY fire is causing rush hour chaos on the A303 this morning.

The vehicle caught fire shortly before 8am today, near to the exit for the B3048, Longparish.

The lorry is currently blocking an eastbound lane.

Traffic is moving slowly and rush hour drivers can expect tailbacks in the area, with queues extending back to the turn-off for the A343, Salisbury Road.

Hampshire's road traffic management team say that there is a 10 minute delay on approach.
